The King of Soho Launches Copacetic Vodka
Recently we had the pleasure of attending the launch of the brand-new The King of Soho Copacetic Vodka at the atmospheric speakeasy, Jack Solomons Club, in the heart of Soho. The King of Soho, known for their delicious London Dry and Variorum gins, have launched their first premium vodka, distilled in small batches in England using copacetic English wheat.
This expertly distilled, crystal-clear vodka has a subtle and delicate flavour, which the brand describes as a “distinct undercurrent of toasted crumpet enhanced with a touch of lemon zest and black pepper”.
We were spoiled with the knowledgeable team from The King of Soho and our own cocktail guru Jamie Stephenson, who told us all about the new vodka and whipped up cocktails like the citrussy ‘The SoSide’ and James Bond-inspired ‘Vesper Martini’, mixed with their London Dry Gin.
The King of Soho was created back in 2013 by Alex Robson and Howard Raymond to capture the essence of Raymond’s father, Paul Raymond who was a legendary figure playing a pivotal role in the cultural and social liberation of British society. Their new spirit in its vibrant purple bottle celebrates the ascendancy of vodka in the late 70s and early 80s, that indicated the dawn of the disco era, dominated by big hair, big flares and big cocktails!
The King of Soho Copacetic Vodka retails at £34.95 per 70cl.
